to us to see and we have done that in the past where the director shared with us the new designs and plans, and i think that it is innovative and the land dedication and the on site affordable and having a former board member and aware of the challenges that that organization has faced with the brick and mortar space and hope that it be a model. some of those merchants could actually live in that area. i am familiar with the concourse and i am doing a large gala, i was sad when we picked the space we didn't know what it was going to be demolished and i understand the point to that. not to say that we would not have used the concourse, but that could be a place that we could use it in the future, it is unfortunate that was a place to know if they were selecting that site this year or last year and this could be the final year and it is regrettable. it is a very large, kind of warehouse spait and it is not worth preserving but it is one of those spaces of the type and size in the city. but it is primarily used for a lot of big events because there are not a lot of big spaces for th
meet the park security needs without physically separating the neighborhood. maybe you can report to us back later. >>: i am deputy director for park planning. yes there was discussion about the fence that i do not know what the final resolution was but i can get back to you.be large.reduced to be more integrated into the neighborhood. >>: thank you. >>: i will open it up for public comment. i don't see any public comment. are there any members of the public that would like to make a comment? public comment will be two minutes.go ahead.and folsom. nice to see the city is putting resources into neighborhoods that really need itheights, etc. in terms of the deed restriction i thought it was interesting the idea of offense was mentioned now. it seems to me that in that area it might be worth having some sort of a fense in order to separate certain types of individuals, the police should have some sort of input about whether the fence is fair or not. with regards to new projects in this area of the city, it is long over due and hopefully it will be the type of project that is going to bene
-level of accountability in plays. i want to know what oversight will be put into view to see that the funds are used wisely. the case from the attorneys and the support staff prosecuting violence in this city are are you able so long as they stay hi high. those kinds loads are we hope short time. i think the peculiar the finance committee did in making the changes necessary to appropriate the amount to the district attorney's office during the budget and finance committee was priority because based on the need what was being recommended to us is appropriate. as well as the information that is of the appropriation going to the status of women was carefully vetted and discussed and i am comfortable in moving this item forward and looking forward to moving another project forward that talks about the additional appropriation and i wait for this this to be returned to the board and supervisor yee >> thank you. i also want to thank the community for actually help with this issue. and i guess one of the comments i want to make and i'll be sporting as it is sent back to committee. as i'm listening i unde
>> it's so great to see a full house like this. it means the world to us and to the whole cause of anti-trafficking. we are waiting for mayor lee. my name is nancy goldberg, cochair of the seven cisco collaborative against human trafficking. i wanted to introduce my past chair, and my new cochair. when i tell people of my involvement their shock to hear that san francisco is in major definition of human trafficking. they think it is people from other parts of the world. there are also so many right here, from our own bay area communities. in the city that is out of human trafficking we are also committed to being an agent of change. i want to give you a brief history of sf cat, san francisco collaborative against human trafficking. in response to what we saw is a growing problem, four organizations formed up in 2008, the jewish coalition against human trafficking; national council of jewish women, jewish reel fund, -- we then realize would needed a wider coalition in order to be more effective we reached out to a large variety of the government sectors. in february 200
dollars for the mayor's office of housing to use as they begin their site prep work so it's another way to get the process on the affordable side started. there's other economic impacts which are significant in materials of fees, construction jobs and an increase over the real estate tax base that the city currently enjoys from the property as is. so, let me just get to what i think in a lot of ways is the heart of the matter which is the removal of the concourse, that's where we have received a lot of feedback from folks. the process that we've gone through here has been a lot different than what we were facing when we were doing the triangle project which is a fenced off lot and the bus yard, those are not sites where people had any economic, cultural or emotional attachment to the site, and we knew that by taking this work on that we'd be upsetting a vocal and important constituency in the city so we didn't take that act lightly and we tried to review the work in two different ways. let me show you the building, this is the shot of the building going on brannan, this is the floor pl
gypsy cabs, not because they're using an app. somehow they're innovative entrepreneurs. so, you guys have to do something about this or forget about making any money. you ruined the lives of a lot of drivers already. come on, do something. you know, hire some investigators out there. do your job. >> thank you. anyone else care to address the board under the public comment? okay, seeing none public comment period is closed. director brinkman. >> could we please, director reiskin, get some kind of update on where we stand with not only hiring -- budgeting to hire new inspector to taxi administrative services, but also just where we stand on what we can do about lift inside car and car to go? i did read the new puc rulings. i have to admit i'm a little lost as to where that leaves us and what our options are now. i think it would be really helpful to get an update on that. i know it concerns -- it concerns all of us as city people and taxi riders. >> especially the insurance part. >> especially the insurance part. it worries me to have people getting into these cars with people the
the board cuts is going to make a difference to us. probably will not be felt for a number of months and may not be felt until the next fiscal year, but those uncertainties have to be noted in terms of our estimates. >> so, ms. zamuda, i don't know if this is an appropriate question for you or to ms. howard. the threat of sequestration at the federal level, have we done some work on thinking about what that impact might be to the city? >> supervisor, we have. it's an an insignificant number. it's approximately $30 million of impact. some of that is on the general fund side, some of it is not. and i think we all will need to be watching closely to see what the federal government does. and then make some determinations about to what degree the city can afford to backfill those kinds of programs. >> okay. and to ms. zamuda's comments or earlier, those would be anticipated be felt in the next fiscal year, though, if they do happen? >> i think that's yet to be seen. you know, we know that federal agencies are already slowing down their spending and anticipation of the sequester. what that likely

(applause) this award is special but in some ways the work should always continue to live on beyond just me as an individual, beyond any individual in the work should always live on in us together when we talk about collaborating in sfr san francisco. for the long-term in the future. the asian pacific legal outreach was founded in 1975 to promote cultural and legalistic services to the most marginalized in this community and i had the benefit of standing on the shoulders of giants with the agency had a sister relationship with other agencies amazing agency such as the asian women shelter, cameron house and arica. in this fight against domestic v

[ applause ] >> i want to say that, because i have been at those kitchens. i have served meals. i know that it is tough to have people who are down and out in the worst times of their lives to be able to be introduced -- and we know it's more than a meal, but it gets started with a home-cooked meal. and then the hands come out and then the thoughts and hearts exchange and how can we help you? and that has been, i think, the ingredients for more than just a great meal. it's an ingredients of life and how we celebrate it here. it is as leader pelosi said, it's our character of san francisco. and so it is also part to say not only do we add that with a new dining hall, but we add on top of that 90 units of affo

, with all the jobs going on, it makes sense to add the mixed use development with housing and with services. it gives people a place to work, to live and to live life. it's a wonderful area and i think the developments will only help the area. there was a time when the concourse and 801 brannan and bh the ice factory of 1 henry adams were good for the area but i encourage you to embrace the change, this is the time and the direction of the neighborhood. thank you for your time. >> thank you. >> good afternoon again, commissioners, sue vaughn with the sierra club. i'm going to reiterate the sierra club's position that there should be a maximum of .5 parking, personally, that may -- i think that's too much but that's the sierra club position, .5 parking and i'm going to put this book right down here, high tide on main street, we don't know -- every car we permit pushes us closer to the tipping point and the tipping point is climate change, melting of the icecap, melting of antarctica and greenland icecap and sea level rise. this is not a scare tactic, this is real and we need to have this re

benefit cost growth is a significant issue for us as well as our unfunded retiree health care liability which, as you'll recall, is $4.4 billion. our labor contracts, as i mentioned, will be open the second year of the budget. this budget -- the projection before you assumes no wage increase in the second year of the budget, but we will be negotiating with the majority of our labor unions not police and fire in the second year. we also, as you all have heard and i think this will continue to be an issue that comes up at this committee and in other places, the effects of federal health care reform are really uncertain. the way that the department receives revenue is changing dramatically. the people who will be covered, it's a whole new expanded pool of people. they have choices about where to -- where to consume health care. do he they want to be a dph client, do they want to go somewhere else. there is a lot of uncertainty around that. the governor has made proposals about potentially shifting those responsibilities entirely to the counties which would have significant and --
